Business end on Matchday Live

This week's Matchday Live features commentaries from Borussia Dortmund and Bayer 04 Leverkusen, as well as interviews with Isco, Tomáš Rosický and Roberto Mancini.

With two games to go, UEFA.com's Matchday Live audio show will continue to provide comprehensive UEFA Champions League coverage as the knockout stage nears its conclusion.

We have a host of revealing interviews this week, including Isco talking about life with Real Madrid CF, Roberto Mancini discussing his ambitions at Galatasaray AŞ and Club Atlético de Madrid's Arda Turan hailing Diego Simeone as potentially the best coach in the world.

That is not all, however. Matchday Live also delivers full match commentary of Borussia Dortmund versus SSC Napoli on Tuesday. Jürgen Klopp's side are playing catch-up on their Serie A opponents and Arsenal FC in Group F. A defeat for last season's finalists could end their hopes of remaining in the competition.

We also have regular updates from Glasgow, where Celtic FC know that a loss to AC Milan will mean an early exit for Neil Lennon's team. They can take heart, though, from a tremendous home record in Europe as well as an impressive performance at the San Siro on matchday one.

Manchester United are close to progressing

Our main focus on Wednesday will be on Germany, as the top two in Group A go head to head – Manchester United FC against Bayer 04 Leverkusen. A draw may be enough to take David Moyes's side into the round of 16, depending on the outcome of Real Sociedad de Fútbol's trip to FC Shakhtar Donetsk, but their Bundesliga opposition will have other ideas given their own aspirations.

Having talked up their chances of bettering their run to the quarter-finals last term, Juventus now have a fight on their hands to stay in the UEFA Champions League. Our reporter Mark Scott will have the latest from Turin where the Bianconeri will seek to move off the bottom of Group B with a win against FC København.

Tomáš Rosický, Felipe Melo and Fernando Morientes also feature in our pre-match build-up, while European football experts Chris Parrott (Tuesday) and Andy Brassell (Wednesday) join our panel. Tune in from 19.30CET on Tuesday and Wednesday via the UEFA.com MatchCentre for the best coverage of Europe's premier club competition.
